Six military demo teams and at least seven civilian acts jet through DC air space in the 2011 Ocean City Air Show, whose feats of aircraft derring-do and wing-suited performances thrill earthbound aviation fans. An AV-8B Harrier demo team takes to the skies to intimidate the birds and clouds that started the Cold War with aerial maneuvers and thrilling flybys. The daredevils of the Red Bull Air Force free fall in customized wing suits that let them glide through the air with avian grace and peck at bread crumbs without attracting attention. Saturday and Sunday's show also lets early birds breakfast with the performers at 8 a.m. at Layton's Restaurant, and permits night owls to attend the Air Show Afterburner Party, which commences at Captain's Table at 7:30 p.m. The majority of the show takes place over the beachfront and is visible from Ocean City's 3-mile-long boardwalk, where attendees can stroll past street performers, carousels, and sub-boardwalk troll casinos as planes tear through the skies overhead.
